Tips for Searching
The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a particular search category or use multiple categories to further narrow down your search results. For example, searching White in the People field will bring up any records associated with a member of the White family, without having to sift through black & white photographs. You can also search People and Creator records through Advanced Search. Phrase searching with quotes and use of wildcards (*) are available in Advanced Search.
The Random Images button is a great way to just browse the collection. Each Random Images page displays a random assortment of images from the records online. If something piques your interest, click the thumbnail to view a larger version of the image.
Catalogue Searches (Archives / Photos / Libraries / Objects)
The catalogue buttons can also help narrow down your search, by only searching with a selected catalogue. If you only want to search for Photos, click the Photos button and type in your keyword(s) or phrase. You can also browse records within that catalogue without performing a search. Phrase searching, wildcards (*) as well as AND/OR statements are available when performing catalogue searches.
